Mazzuchelli Middle Schools hosts mini-dance marathon

Posted:
DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Mazzuchelli Middle School in Dubuque was home to a two hour mini-dance marathon Friday evening. This is the third year Mazzuchelli has hosted a mini-marathon to raise money for Loras College's Dance Marathon.

This year, money was raised for the event through penny wars between sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade students.

So far, Mazzuchelli has raised more than $1,000 dollars through penny wars alone.

"It's so enlightening to know that they are coming out here to support a cause that I and several other teachers are super excited about." Said Kate Dean a teacher at Mazzuchelli.

Last year, Mazzuchelli raised more than $2,700 for Loras College's Dance Marathon.
